Farewell to Colin Baynes

THREE-YEAR-OLDĀ filly Envious will make a poignant return to racing at the the Gore Harness Racing Club meeting on 10 October.

She’s owned by Jo Calder and her partner Kenny Baynes, a son of former owner-trainer, breeder and administrator Colin Baynes, who died in Gore this week. He was 94.

The club has renamed Envious’s race the Farewell Colin Baynes Mobile Pace. Champion reinsman Dexter Dunn will drive the Changeover filly, wearing the Baynes colours known to the harness racing community through the deeds of horses like Cool Cat, Clancy, Game Paul, Roman Gladiator and, most recently, Cool Cobber.

Envious is trained at Macca Lodge by Tony Stratford.

FOOTNOTE: Envious finished second.
